The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to return to work in 2020 with a visit to Canada House in London on January 7, following a six-week break from royal duties.
Meghan and Harry will meet with the Canadian High Commissioner to the UK, HE. Ms Janice Charette, to thank her and staff for their hospitality during the couple’s recent trip to the country.
Following their meeting with the High Commissioner, their Royal Highnesses will then visit the Canada Gallery to view a special exhibition by Indigenous Canadian artist Skawennati.
Buckingham Palace has stated the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will also meet with different members of the High Commission team who work in a range of sectors supporting the partnership between Canada and the UK.
The pair previously visited Canada House in March 2019, when they celebrated Commonwealth Day. At the time, Meghan was pregnant with son Archie, who was born on May 6. The former actress called Toronto home for year while she filmed the show Suits.
Up to 500,000 Canadians currently live in the UK and Meghan and Harry reportedly spent Christmas in the country as guests of music producer David Foster. The couple, along with son Archie, eight months, were joined by Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland at a mansion on Vancouver Island owned by a close friend of Foster.
While out on a hike on New Year’s Day, the royals helped a young couple struggling with a selfie stick by taking their photo.
Asymina Kantorowicz, 29, told PEOPLE after first sharing her story with CTV news Vancouver Island, she didn’t recognise them at first.
“I’m a Suits fan and I first noticed Abigail and then I looked up and realised it was Meghan taking the photo, she said. “Then I looked back at the group and realised Prince Harry was there too!”
Meghan and Harry rang in the New Year by sharing a new father-son photo on the Sussex Royal Instagram page, taken by Meghan.
The photo was set to a Coldplay song and captioned: “Wishing you all a very happy new year and thanking you all for your continued support!
“We’ve loved meeting so many of you from around the world and can’t wait to meet many more of you next year. We hope 2020 brings each of you health and continued happiness.”
